Hello and Welcome !

Todays ‘Blog Hop’ we are all showcasing projects using the gorgeous ‘Spring’ like Stampin’ Up! cardstock colours Balmy Blue, Blackberry Bliss and Mango Medley, pictured in the graphic in the header above.

Today I am sharing a ‘last chance to get’ retiring stamp set Playful Backgrounds #141920. When creating for a colour challenge like this, I like to cut one base card and one mat layer from each colour, Blackberry Bliss, Mango Medley and Balmy Blue and then play around with layouts, adding a neutral, in this case Very Vanilla. I chose to use this stamp set to have multi-coloured ‘bubble’ effect in the background.

I started by stamping the ‘bubble’ effect stamp in Blackberry Bliss #147092, Mango Medley ink pad #147093 and Balmy Blue ink pad #147105.

The Thank You Thinlits #146832 was cut from each of the middle mat layer plus another from scraps of the same colours.

To finish my card trio today, I stamped one large and two small, hot air balloons from Lift Me Up stamp set #142893 (Wood mount) #142896 (Clear Mount), in each colour. These were then cut with then cut using Up & Away Thinlits #142748.

Lastly a few Clear Rhinestones #144220 were added to the balloon baskets to some ‘bling’.

I hope you like the finished card and enjoyed my Colour Combo card this month. Please leave me a quick comment before hopping to Angela’s Blog to see the lovely project she has created to share with you today.
